The treeblog trees
Posted on March 21, 2007 by Ash
As the semester draws to a close, it is time to look to the very near future... to next week! To the planting of the first treeblog seeds. Scots pine and cider gum seeds, tiny seeds, planted, germinating, growing... It's getting down to the wire now. Expect good news early next week!

Yesterday at uni I was working in a practical which involved placing different seeds in various conditions in petri dishes. When the practical was over, I took the liberty of smuggling away the leftover seeds. I don't think they'll be missed.
Watch this space...

As I mentioned in the first post (the post that hurts the most), I have a packet of Scots pine seeds. It came into my possession at a careers fair hosted by the University of Edinburgh on the 11th of October 2006. A friend and I visited the Forestry Commission stand, and we were each given a packet as a promotional freebie.
Contents: Scots pine seeds
If you also have one of these packets, I would be most interested to hear how your seeds turn out!

Hello there. You are reading the first ever post at treeblog. Right now, there isn’t a whole lot of interest here. Yet with time, I hope that will change. treeblog won’t be your average blog (or at least I hope not). The purpose of treeblog - the point of its existence - is to form a chronology of the development of a group of trees, right from being planted as seeds or nuts. To chart their development from germination to maturity… supposing that they don’t die before they get there. At this moment, the first trees have yet to be planted. But I have in my possession one packet of Scots pine seeds. Soon these seeds will be planted, and treeblog will be well on its way to documenting its first germinated tree. It is my intention to plant these seeds at the end of March.
Coincidentally, today is 'I Love Pine' Day.
